L. 105–220) provides the framework for a network of State workforce investment systems designed to meet the needs of the nation’s businesses, job seekers, youth, and those who want to further their careers. Title I of WIA requires that States develop five-year strategic plans for this system, which must also contain the detail plans required under the Wagner-Peyser Act (29 U.S.C. 49g). Plan modifications to the WIA title I and Wagner-Peyser Act (29 U.S.C. 49g) are required by WIA 20 CFR 661–230. Section V provides States the option of submitting a State Unified Plan. The State Unified Plan was previously cleared under OMB Control Number 1205–0407 and is now being combined with this request for clarity and because they are so closely related in scope and requirements.
